Flashcards in Chap 1 Part 3 Deck (17)
What are the two subcategories of epithelial glands?
exocrine and endocrine
Method of secretion by which the product is released into a duct or directly onto an epithelial surface
What is an example of parenchyma where components are directly involved with the primary function?
biceps- skeletal muscle cells
What is an example of stroma where components provide mechanical/metabolic support?
biceps - tendon, CT, blood vessels, nerves
What are the 3 methods of secretion for exocrine secretion?
merocrine, holocrine, and apocrine
What is the most common method of secretion for exocrine secretion?
merocrine (M for most)
Which method of secretion, associated with odor, secretes entire cells with intact molecules?
Which method of secretion is associated with pubic and axillary sweat glands, associated with odor, and secretes some cytoplasm and membranes?
What products mentioned in class are secreted by exocrine secretion?
acinus (smallest division of a gland), serous demilune (small group of cells attached to a mucus acinus), and myoepithelial cells (contractile cells)
What glands are associated with exocrine secretion?
serous, mucus, and mixed glands
What 3 things regulate exocrine secretion?
myoepithelial cells, hormones, and blood supply (O2 supply increases secretion)
Which type of secretion involves secretory products being released into nearby CT for vascular dispersal to target cells/organs?
What are the 2 subtypes of endocrine secretion?
paracritic secretion and autocrine secretion
Which type of secretion involves secretory products commonly referred to as hormones?
How is endocrine secretion regulated?
hormonal (+ and - feedback loops) and the ANS
Which subtype of endocrine secretion is associated with the signaling cell being close to the target cell so the hormone does not enter the blood?
